This is a rare opportunity to join Burnley and Pendle’s leading provider of specialist palliative care.
As part of our ongoing service development, we are seeking to appoint a Hospice Physician or Physicians to join our established medical team. We would be delighted to receive expressions of interest from medical professionals who may be interested in working in a hospice setting.
Working across all Hospice Clinical Services with an emphasis on inpatients you will have responsibility for ensuring the needs of patients referred to the Hospice, and those important to them, are met as well as influencing the development of clinical services.
The contracted working time for the full time hours is 37.5 hours per week (Monday to Saturday); working on a rota basis with other members of the Hospice medical team, plus an additional commitment to participate in the Hospice weekend on-call rota. However, we recognise that it may suit a physician who wishes to continue working in the NHS and part time at the Hospice or who can commit to part time hours only and consequently are able to accommodate a job share of part time hours.
The Hospice is able to make employer’s contributions to the post holder’s personal pension plan or to the NHS pension scheme (subject to status). In addition, we will reimburse the full cost of relevant professional indemnity premiums.
The Hospice is committed to the training and development of all who work at Pendleside and would be willing to fully fund a postgraduate certificate in palliative medicine.
All Pendleside employees enjoy fully-subsidised meals and refreshments while on duty, free car parking and free membership of the Benenden Healthcare Society.
We are tremendously proud of the Hospice and the vital services we provide, and our medical team is fundamental to our present and future effectiveness. If you have an interest in working with people with life-limiting illnesses and feel that Pendleside could be the place for you, please contact:
- Helen McVey (Chief Executive): 01282 440104 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Anne Huntley (Clinical Services Manager): 01282 440111 or email@example.com
We would be delighted to make arrangements for you to visit the Hospice and to provide all the information you may need to help you make your decision to apply for the post.
